Say Goodbye to Excessive Sweating and Get Your Life Back
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a medical condition that affects millions of people across the globe. According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, some 950,000 Canadians are affected by this, nearly 3% of the country’s population. Left untreated, it can have a profound impact on your life. Not only is there a financial cost associated with constantly cleaning and replacing clothes with sweat stains, but it can seriously affect confidence.
The good news is there is a solution! Botox® injections can target specific locations in your underarm, blocking neural control of the sweat glands. Studies have shown a reduction in sweating in as little as one week post-treatment. Take back your life with this effective treatment!
Botox® For Excessive Sweating
At PearlMedicaMD, Dr. Murphy treats underarm, or axillary, hyperhidrosis by using carefully targeted Botox® injections in the armpits. Botulinum toxin type A, the main protein found in Botox®, actively blocks the neural control of your body’s sweat glands. The end result for the patient is a reduction in sweating, with noticeable results showing up in as little as a week.
In fact, some studies have shown that repeated treatment prolongs the effect. This means that, while a single treatment typically lasts between three and nine months, repeated treatments can actually increase that number noticeably.
Most, if not all, insurance companies recognize hyperhidrosis as a medical condition. Check with your insurance provider to see if you’re eligible for compensation before you start treatment.
